Await! the magic of the old and exciting new ADVERTISTMENTS
“I am truly sorry it has taken so long, but I WILL be there this time!” That was an iron-clad promise from Cliff Richard, ahead of his first-ever live concert in Colombo on February 23.In an exclusive and extensive phone interview with The Sunday Times this week. Britain’s biggest hit machine confessed he never got involved in deciding where he should or shouldn’t go when planning a tour.
Student’s agony
Like any young person who has ventured abroad for the first time, next to the warmth of his family's love, 22-year-old Piyumal Gunawardene misses his mother's cooking the most, especially the plate of steaming hot red rice which is the staple at their home in Matara.
Bike hazards
There has been a drastic increase in motorbike accidents, more than in all other road accidents during recent years. The main cause is lack of skill and competency of the riders as well as indiscipline on the roads, Director Traffic SSP Lucky Peiris said in an interview with The Sunday Times.
MS helpline
Considered invalid or disabled, MS (Multiple Sclerosis) sufferers are often written off as being no longer of any use to anyone. It does not help that the disease, owing to its complexity and variety of symptoms is not easy to diagnose. Nevertheless, research indicates that medicines and alternative therapies are available to reduce the severity of the illness.
Winitha looks back
The years sit gently on Winitha Fernando….she has passed the Psalmist’s life span of three score and ten, she tells us with a warm smile, but her inspiration has never flagged, her hand is still steady, her vision clear and the urge to paint still strong within her.Though resident in the UK for long years, it is a very special occasion that brings her back to the island this time around.
